“I love my home”

“I love my home”

This special edition of Good News Tues. features an article published last week by Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service about Milwaukee Habitat Homeowner Wendy Winston.

Wendy Winston has known about Habitat for Humanity for the last 15 years, but it wasn’t until she had her daughter that she decided to become a homeowner.

And she said it was the best decision she’s ever made. Winston and her 5-year-old daughter, Namirah Joy (pictured), now live in her dream home in the Midtown area.

In November of 2020, Winston applied for Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program while still looking for places to rent. She was accepted and started working on her “sweat equity” hours by March of 2021 and was in her new home by September.

“From what I know of the program, my process was actually a short one,” Winston said. “The process was amazing.”

“And I love my home,” she added.
